if there is something that annoys me is unlocking a new ship and having to start grinding it from lv 1, as tiers go up this become worst that i why i whant to suggest the idea of upgrading ships.
upgrading ship is an option to convert the selected ship into another ship example harpy -----> steel harpy----> hydra and so on while retaining part of the crew expirience, a downgrade should be posible but would be capped by lv.
how it will work?
step 1)we got a harpy and hit the upgrade button
step 2)we paid 3/4 the steel harpy price and harpy is turned into a steel harpy
step 3)we are given 3 options regarding crew training:
a)no crew retraining = cost nothing, crew will start from v 1
b)basic traning = cost ship tier x 30k, retain 75% of crew exp from previous ship
c) advance training = cost gold, retain 100% of crew exp from previous ship
